    We had a lovely meal with attentive service. The tuna poke is our favorite starter and it did not disappoint. The red snapper was also good with sauce of coconut and lime and black rice. The two downsides were the noise in the restaurant - we could barely hear each other talk which isn’t particularly romantic- and the lighting did not feel appropriate. Once the sun set, the restaurant lights were turned on and very bright.

    The waitress was not that great. It almost seemed as though she was rushing us when we spoke to her about the menu. I had to ask her 3 times for bread. This is my 3rd time at this restaurant and my previous visits were better. We sat outside so the view was nice. I had the snapper which did not have much flavor but my sister had the pork and she said it was really Good.

    Overall a decent experience and I think I would probably come back. Food and drinks were wonderful. Our server was just terrible. We saw other servers doing great with their own tables, so I just assume that our guy was having a bad night. We went for a birthday dinner and the restaurant made it very special. Our server hardly came by our table, maybe 4 or 5 times in the 2+ hours that we were there. We aren’t 2+ hours eating people, so that wasn’t fun either.

    Oysters and shrimp cocktail were phenomenal but the lunch meals weren’t really anything to speak about. Two of us got the fish sandwich and it was very bland and more bread than fish. The tacos only the shrimp taco was good, the grouper was unseasoned and very gross. Overall the service was good, our server seemed to be In a little bit of a rush but I believe it was because she was the only server working lunch today. But I definitely say get appetizers but skip lunch there!

    We ate there on a Wednesday night, arriving at 5:30pm, with reservations. Dinner for four, before heading across the bay to the Ruth Eckerd Hall for a concert. Food and service was superb. We shared two appetizers (octopus and burrata). We also shared two salads (pear & grape and another one). For dinner, both wives order scallops, and we had Sea Bass and Snapper. All were amazing.

    Oystercatchers is always a great brunch experience. Great service. Ambiance was lovely with live piano music and a waterfront view. No major complaints about the food, but I expected better quality and portion for the price. I wish they would bring back the brunch!

    Haven’t been in years however it was a bit underwhelming - the atmosphere and decor seemed very bland and less beautiful than I remember it. But the food was delicious - sat outside for the Easter brunch but was struck that there was nothing on the table - not even a small bud case or something - spring Easter small flowers - it felt like we were just sitting out on a residential deck with no frills. ***But the Lobster and Crab Omelete and the basket of sweets and fingerling potatoes were divine!!***(however would have preferred the red sauce was on the side and not poured over the potatoes - had to take it off! ) Potatoes were delish without it.

    We went for Easter brunch and it was fabulous. The view is spectacular and the food was delicious. Our waiter was excellent and even asked the chef to come over as he is from the same area in Italy as my husband. All around it made our holiday. It is a great idea to visit Oyster Catchers and then stay the night at the Hyatt’s casitas that our steps away. We were able to take an afternoon nap after our brunch and see the sunset that evening.

    Food and sunset view were excellent. For appetizers, we had both shrimp cocktail and assorted clams - recommend both. I had the seafood trio and my husband had steak both of which were very good. The service however, was slow and not attentive. Leisurely dining is great, but felt like we needed to hail people down to get another glass of wine or order our entree.

    Food and service was outstanding. Party of 3. We had Wagyu tartar, oyster Rockefeller for appetizers. Both were great, tartar was small, but flavor was on a different level! Entrees consisted of, Filet & lobster, Wagyu Burger, Bouillabaisse in bread bowl. Wasn't a drop left of the Bouillabaisse as my son loved it. Filet (Med Rare) & Lobster was pretty small upon arrival, but it being Wagyu was very rich, I didn't even finish it. Outstanding dish. Wagyu burger (rare) was ordered by my son in law. He said it was the best burger he's ever had. Didn't finish his either as it being Wagyu was very rich and filled him up fast. All 3 of us enjoyed every aspect of this restaurant.
